Underground filmmaker Shirley Clarke (The Connection, Portrait of Jason) made this 1963 semi-documentary about African-American street gangs in Harlem. It was produced by Frederick Wiseman, and features real-life gang members acting alongside Clarence Williams III, Carl Lee, Antonio Fargas, and more, with an original jazz score by Dizzy Gillespie. "Mesmerizing scenes of Harlem street life in 1963--record stores, doo wop, hustling, robbery, dope, hookers, and more."

Shirley Clarke--USA--1963--125 mins.
